Tanabe DF-210
where is a good place to get Tanabe DF-210 springs? I haven't really found a lot of sites to compare.

Gen7fan did you need to replace your shocks or struts when you put these on your car.

you don't necessarily have to, but they'll eventually need it with the df210s. plus the suprastore also has a good deal on the kyb agx struts. thumbsup

For some reason people like to debate this, I don't see any room for debate, anything lower than 1" is a YES.

I have KYB GR2 struts, and yes they were put on at the same time as the Tanabe springs. DF210's no doubt need new struts but I don't know of one strut that can take that drop, Koni, KYB, and Tokico all max at 1.5", which means there warranty is void any lower than that.

Don't get me wrong I would go for it but get the best struts you can just know that the warranty is void and that they will wear out early.

If you put those spings on stock struts get ready for a shit ride and for them to blow out in no time. Hope you have the cash for two installs because that is what you will end up doing.

if anyone in florida wants a ride in my car. let me know. the ride is not bad at all.

as for the above mentioned loss of money. learn to do your installs yourself. haha. rofl you may have to rent some equipment but you save money on TIME cause its YOURS!
